Black Friday Special

By Uncategorized No Comments

My new Bible study, Latte with Luke, weighing in at 328 pages, is the first study in the Coffee Cup series on the life of Christ. Number twelve comes with an all-new cover design. For Black Friday, I’m offering the book at more than 50 percent off the retail price ($7 each!) for orders of five+ books, while supplies last. Maybe you want to lead a group in a study of the life of Christ in the new year? Or perhaps you’d like to give copies for Christmas? Orders of 5+ books are $7.00 each; individual books cost $10.50—still a significant savings. Venmo me your address at the handle below. Or use the store on this site, and I’ll send a refund check with your books. Subscribers to my site can order anytime between now and midnight on Cyber Monday. (S-h-h-h!)

But first, the backstory: Jesus and his disciples are walking somewhere on a Sabbath, and they feed themselves by taking some heads of grain in a field. And what do the religious leaders do? They object, because Jesus and his team have done “work.”
